Subject: Re: Survey of e-usage
I wonder if those who're opposed to ADS lending any kind of support
to a survey on standardizing written/citation forms for references to
electronic exchange of information also want to extend ultimate freedom to
to their students who'd prefer not to have to get so fussy about spelling
etc. After all!
Joan Cook makes a good case for repetition, and what the survey
seems to be about is the citation-like usages that we'd like to be able to
know how to write in a formal paper. And Rudy Troike's caveat is
important: those doing the survey should not go into the endeavor with an
unyieldingly pre-set agenda if they want to be better received among
academics than Pat Buchannan.
